Event description

Description

Join visiting poet Philip Hall - who is featuring at QPF's Riverbend Poetry Series I - for a special Introduction to Ecopoetics workshop where he will cover:

  • What is nature poetry? What is ecopoetry? The poetics of praise, dwelling and home.

  • What are the features of ecopoetics?

  • How should we decide the worth of ecopoetry?

  • Is ecopoetry solely an activist poetry?

  • Wilderness is Romanticism’s terra nullius. How do we tune ecopoetics to the priorities of postcolonialism?

Phillip Hall worked for many years as a teacher of outdoor education and sport throughout regional New South Wales, Northern Queensland and the Northern Territory. He now resides in Melbourne’s Sunshine where he is a passionate member of the Western Bulldogs Football Club. Phillip’s poetry and reviews can be seen in such spaces as Best Australian Poems, Cordite Poetry Review, Plumwood Mountain and Verity La while his publications include Sweetened in Coals (Ginninderra Press), Borroloola Class (IPSI) and (as editor) Diwurruwurru: Poetry from the Gulf of Carpentaria (Blank Rune Press). UWAP will publish Fume in February 2018.
